I paid to submit my main page and a couple other keyword rich pages to inktomi, and its been about a month and at least one of my listings are in the top five for almost all of my keywords. But I want all my pages submitted to ink and then optimize each one differently based upon certain keywords. Should I pay to submit 15-20 more pages or will they be spidered?
If you use paid submission for a page to Ink, ONLY that page is spidered as a result of the submission.
Inktomi say that your other pages will be eligible for inclusion with their normal spidering (ie, totally luck of the draw as to if, when and how many).
However, there is anecdotal evidence to suggest that paying for a page to be submitted may in fact deter inclusion of the rest of the site... as if they're keeping you hanging to see if you might pay for more pages.
My experience was that one site with four paid pages took a year for the unpaid pages to be included, despite regular spidering of the site..... while another site of mine with no paid pages was included in about 4 or 5 months. I'm not gonna draw any conclusions from that, but I certianly found it frustrating at the time.
I have the same thing - I paid for several pages and about a month later all my other pages were included. I'd say submit the pages that don't have a lot of looksmart results coming in above them - let the others show up naturaly.
